Frohnburg CastleFrohnburg Castle

History: The baroque Frohnburg Castle was built in the 17th century as a country house for the prince archbishops. Today, the castle houses music students from the Mozarteum Music Academy.

The film: Its facade, courtyard and front gate were used for the Trapp Villa in the film. Maria arrived here, after dancing along the Hellbrunn Alley to meet the von Trapps for the first time. The baron tore the flag down from over the palace doorway when they returned from their honeymoon and heard about the German occupation of Austria. They pushed their car noiselessly out of the castle's gate when they tried to escape.



Hellbrunn PalaceHellbrunn Palace

History: Hellbrunn Palace - just a few kilometres south of the city - was built betwee 1613 and 1619 under the orders of Markus Sittius von Hohenems. As the archbishop had spent part of his life in Italy he tried to create an Italian atmosphere in this castle and its gardens. Unlike many other palaces, Hellbrunn has undergone no style changes and, so even today, the visitor can enjoy the lively southern scenery of this renaissance park.

The artificial water games in Hellbrunn with numerous grottos, trick fountains and the mechanical toy theatre were built to entertain the noble guests of Archbishop Markus Sittikus. The impressive frescoes in the palace halls are masterpieces of the 17th century by Donato Mascagni from Florence.


The Gazebo at HellbrunnThe Gazebo at Hellbrunn

One of the main sites from the film is the glass gazebo, setting for various love scenes, like "Sixteen going on seventeen" and "Something good". After a complete renovation, was reconstructed in the park of Hellbrunn Palace. This is not the original setting, which was the garden of Leopoldskron Castle, but a more accessible one for visitors.

The film: love scenes
